Putting it on the line day in/day out in order to create a better life is always hard. However, it’s not as hard as it would be to one day look back over your life and say, “What if?”
I’d rather live with failure than with regrets.
Below is a quote from a man who dared to go against the grain and become something great. I think of this quote often when what I aspire to seems too tough. Enjoy.
“It’s not the critic who counts, not the one who points out how the strong man stumbled or how the doer of deeds might have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena. Whose face is marred with sweat and dust and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again and again and again, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions—and spends himself in a worthy cause. Who, if he wins, knows the triumph of high achievement, and who, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat!”
– Teddy Roosevelt
